It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the death of our dear friend and band mate, Bob Wall.
On December 23, 2015, Bob died on the very flight that was to take him to his loving daughter and grand kids.
He was a guitar player along lines of George Harrison of the Beatles. His guitar parts were always uniquely crafted to fit the song. He was not a "flash" player, but wanted to play what ever would best showcase the song, and support the group. But he could certainly play with aggressive fervor when the time came.
His unique humor could lift the mood of the whole room.
He didn't chime in much at group meetings, but when he did we listened. On the rare occasions where he spoke from the stage, his candor was refreshing, and his point was always penetrating.
Bob was in fairly poor health for the last few years, and the cause of his death was a heart attack.
I fondly remember that Bob always embraced the turbulence when we flew. He saw it as a maximum roller coaster ride. I chuckle a bit when i think of his soul leaving his body from that airplane bathroom, and just exploding out into the sky on his way to see Jesus!
He was a trooper always. He played our last few gigs in recent years with his oxygen tanks on stage. He was not able to stand for long periods of time so he did the gigs in a sitting position, but always brought what we came to call the "wall of sound", delivering his unique guitar playing with full passion.
He will always be greatly missed. Our loss is Heaven's gain.
